The secret to a BIG BUTT...


...lol! NO...I am not talking about mine. I created this little m&m tote for my friend Charlene (SCS- LilluvsStampin) because she is having hand surgery today and will not be able to stamp for a few weeks. (((Charlene)))

I have NO idea why--but she somehow ended up with the nickname "Big Butt Bertie." I do know that she does NOT have a big butt, however, but she loves m&ms....so I designed this little m&m tote for her---I thought it would be the perfect "feel better" treat for her.

I am running short on time today so this is brief. I will update this post with a supply list asap. Here is a close up of the flower window:


My favorite part of the tote is that I used the flower punch from Stampin' Up! to create the little flower window so you can see the m&ms through the front. I love how all the colors of the m&ms look like a fun flower!

Thanks for stopping by!
Edit: Yes, I can do a tutorial if you are interested. Just give me a day or two!
